There has never been a better time to be in meeting planning and event management. Social Media has forever changed the path for event planners. This social business path is very new to many of us, and can become quite treacherous to navigate. The good news is that there is absolutely no shortage of resources and information out there just waiting to be consumed, with how-to-tips, best practices, and more, especially on the topic of Social Media. You can never have enough resources at your disposal to make sure you are staying ahead of the curve, but today, there is a surplus. The bad news is our challenge of sifting through all of this content and media just to find a single piece of information can be a major barrier to productivity. If you’re like me, when you’re researching a particular topic online, such as social media, you like to get straight to the point. While I am a passionate advocate for the written word, there are a lot of writers out there who just need to get there faster.
